Cologne Tower

The Cologne Tower (KölnTurm) is the tallest office building in Cologne at 148.5 m (487 ft) tall (165.48 m (542.9 ft) including antenna). Construction of the building lasted from June 1999 to November 2001. Due to its location in the Köln-Neustadt-Nord district, near Cologne's MediaPark, the tower primarily serves as an office building for various companies in the media sector.

The Cologne Tower is the second-tallest skyscraper in North Rhine-Westphalia (after the Post Tower in Bonn) and the twelfth tallest in Germany.

The observation deck and restaurant, located on the 30th floor, were opened to the public in June 2006.
